caravan Safety

 One of the most essential parts of your camping kit is the caravan fire extinguisher. Safety equipment such as camping first aid kits, gas and smoke alarms and even our glow in the dark products are vital to ensure your wellbeing on holiday. Accidents happen how ever careful you are and having the back up of the right safety items ensures damage limitation and peace of mind.

 Caravan Safety Equipment


Fire Equipment

Whilst camping, caravanning or motorhoming safety is a high priority, thats why we advise that all caravanners and motorhomers keep a small portable fire exthinguisher with them at all times on their vehicle. You may go 30 years with no problems and therefore never use the extinguisher or you may need to use it within hours of your trip, you can never know.




Fire Buckets

A fire bucket is a bucket filled with water or sand which is used to prevent or extinguish fires. In most cases the fire bucket will be painted red and stamped with the word 'fire' written across the bucket. It would be wise to keep either a fire bucket or a fire extinguisher on your vehicle at all times just incase any accidents that may occur.
